Here is how you can convert date to seconds:

Step 1.Convert date string to object using date()

let d = new Date('2022-07-05 08:36:33');

Step 2. Convert date object to milliseconds by using getTime()

d.getTime()

Step 3. Divide the result by 1000 to convert milliseconds to seconds

d.getTime() / 1000

All together:

let d = new Date('2022-07-05 08:36:33');

let secs = d.getTime() / 1000;

console.log(secs)
